  • Summary: Director Allen Hughes, one half of the Hughes brothers that brought us Menace 2 Society and From Hell , stepped up and delivered a solid film here. With so much going on with the plot and so many diverse characters throughout, this easily could have turned into a mess.

Broken City

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: A decade ago, two of my least favorite actors were Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe. Why, you ask? I don’t know, really. I guess I got the image that they were kind of jerks in real life, so therefore I really didn’t seem to care for their films.

  • Conclusion: 'Broken City' had potential. Perhaps if it had focused more on making a dark and dreary private eye movie instead of resorting to the same old political thriller tricks we're all used to, it would've been something worth spending time with.

Broken City

Cinema Blend
18 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Broken City has extremely high aspirations for itself. It desperately wants to be one of those smart, fast-paced thrillers that leads normally sane people to stay up late loudly arguing over its ending, but the final product isn't that engaging, surprising or even thought-provoking.

Broken City

AV Club
17 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Brian Tucker’s script for Broken City made the prestigious “Black List” of best unproduced screenplays in 2008. At its best, though, the film strains heroically to achieve its Chinatown -level ambition and transcend its hackneyed elements: an alcoholic, disgraced cop with a tragic past; a powerful...

Review: ‘Broken City’

Variety
